Music Current 2023 - Nadar Ensemble, Doppelgänger

Saturday, 15 April 2023, 8.00pm

Dublin Sound Lab’s Music Current festival returns with a visually stunning and technically outstanding four-day festival programme showcasing some of the most fearless innovators in contemporary music. The festival will host four new concerts, a chamber opera, workshops and discussions that explore the cutting edge of new music, as it takes over Project Arts Centre from April 12 – 15.

Music Current platforms some of the most adventurous musical and visual artists including celebrated Irish artist Jaki Irvine whose new work, Re_sett_ing_s, for ensemble and VJ, will be a major draw to this year’s event. This year the festival welcomes the innovative international new music artists and ensembles Nadar Ensemble, Schallfeld Ensemble, and Natacha Diels – all of whom are performing Ireland for the first time.

Nadar Ensemble (Belgium) presents a multi-layered musical and visual discourse, with avatars as main characters set into their concert Doppelgänger. The piece by Jessie Marino sets a magic and confusing atmosphere, Michael Beil and Pierre Jodlowski create a more gloomy wonderland, full of Lynchian alienation. The programme also features the Marx Brothers’s Duck Soup's famous mirror scene presents us with the most dramatic moment of self-identification in the 1933 film by the Marx Brothers. Finally, Stefan Prins leads us to the dark side of the wondrous technology.
